Our Flavour of Chile holiday is the perfect introduction to Chile and takes in 3 of Chile's best areas in just 12 days. This exciting trip immerses you in Chilean history and culture in two of its most vibrant cities, whilst giving you a dose of adventure and sunshine in the highest, driest desert in the world.
Fly overnight from the UK to Santiago for 3 nights in the capital city of Chile. Enjoy a fascinating Half Day City Tour on your first morning and learn about the multi-cultural history of Chile that has shaped the country you see today. Don't forget to ask your guide to recommend other places of interest!
On the second afternoon you will join a half day tour to the Chilean Wine Region, which sits just south of Santiago. You will head to a local vineyard where a guide will show you around the vineyards, the wine production process and finish with tasting a selection of the wine!
Fly from Santiago to Calama to discover the Atacama Desert – the highest, driest desert in the World. You will spend 4 nights based in the town of San Pedro de Atacama. On your first afternoon you will head out on a tour to see sunset at the Moon Valley, a stunning canyon just a short drive from town.
On the second day you will head out on a full day tour to the Altiplanic Lagoons, before visiting the famous salt flats to see several species of flamingoes. The day will be full of inspiring scenery that is sure to fill up your memory card!
The third day is free to relax, but with so much more to see you may decide to book another tour or hire some mountain bikes and head off into the hills that surround the town.
Flight back to Santiago. Upon arrival you will be transferred through the Casablanca Valley to the coastal town of Valparaiso, where you will spend two nights. Valparaiso is a town with a unique bohemian atmosphere characterised by the brightly coloured houses, a lively restaurant scene and artwork that literally spills onto the streets.
Many homes have opened their doors to become little art galleries and an afternoon walking around is a must. You cannot visit this historical town without taking a ride on one of the funiculars that link the old hillside with the new town below.
You will head back to Santiago airport for your overnight flight back to the UK.

Meridiano Sur is a small boutique hotel with Chilean identity, in the heart of Santiago. This stylish boutique hotel is set in a cosy house that has been completely remodelled for its new purpose. The family owned business has quickly become a very popular place to stay in the Providencia district. The hotel's communal areas have a serene atmosphere with comfortable lounges, shelves of books and a quaint terrace at the back of the property, where you can enjoy some of the Santiago sunshine.
A short walk out of town brings you to a small oasis of tranquillity, in the form of La Casa de Don Tomás. The hotel is laid out around a central courtyard space in several low rise adobe buildings. The hotel has a small swimming pool area complete with sun loungers and a seating area, which is the perfect spot for a refreshing swim after a dusty day in the desert. Rooms are spacious, airy and cool offering a nice respite from the dry heat of the town.
As the name suggests, Thomas Somerscales Boutique Hotel was once the home of nineteenth century English painter Thomas Somerscales and his family. The building has been carefully restored to offer comfortable guest accommodation while maintaining the character and charm of the original house and offers good value accommodation in the heart of Valparaiso.
